Where are the Sonic Boom reviews? Apparently SEGA refused to send out review copies, which may suggest they aren't confident in the quality of the games.
Wow, yeah... That's really not a good sign.
After everything we've seen from the game and the crappy cartoon to go along with it I think this would be the third bad sign
The show isn't that bad, after all it's aimed for kids, but it certainly feels kinda forced, things happen because yes. And also the animation it's not that good eiher. But it enters in the acceptable range. It wouldn't be bad for the episodes to be a bit longer.
Meh surely it's not too much for Journalists to spend their own money on a game every now and then.
the problem is that no matter how good or bad a sonic game is reviewers have been bashing every game released and this is probably why sega said no.
Pac Man Ghostly Adventures has better animation that the new Sonic. I really want this to be good but I fear that Generations will be the last Sonic I ever play.
Shasamaz: The problem caused by the dev not sending out review copies of games is not as much that the reviewer has to buy them but they don t get them in time to wrote a review before the game releases - therefore there are. Of reviews for people to read before purchasing the game when it releases
* All they need to do it make the games like Sonic 1 & 2. Do EXACTLY THAT and nothing else.
Yes, if done right. Sonic 4 was extremely disappointing, it did not live up to the Genesis titles at all.
A bit of 2D Sonic and 3D gameplay is all i ask for........wait, we already had that with Sonic Generations, why change it again ? This is just a spin off game though so maybe they still plan to go back to Sonic Generations style gameplay.
Sonic CD and 3 are some of the best Sonic games
So its going to end up like basically every other sonic game since the originals.
Nah, Generations was really good. Despite it having a lackluster last boss and could have used a few more stages. Also enjoyed the Sonic Adventure games. That's about it though... 1-3&Knuckles were the shining Sonic examples, and should be followed by future games. If only Sega could recall what made those so special.
I'm not really surprised I wasn't expecting outstanding scores for this game
After seeing a leaked playthrough, those that enjoyed watching others suffer through Sonic '06 are in for a treat... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
It is just one glitch though, pretty much all games have glitches, especially these days.
Okay... http://www.neogaf.com/forum... ROFL!!!!
I'm fine with this as I believe that reviewers should buy their own games. It helps to promote a review that is as unbiased as possible, that is if they aren't throwing a fit about not getting it for free. only downside is that you get websites saying that they aren't confident in their product when it may very well have nothing to do with that. We simply don't know their reasoning.
No surprise as the quality has dropped significantly for the Sonic games.
not made by Sonic Team so it doesn't count
Sonic Generations and Colors were considered pretty good. I've also seen a lot of Sonic fans defending Sonic Lost World as well. It gives me the impression it's been somewhat underrated.
So thats, AC Unity, CoD AV (servers), nba 2k15 (servers) and a ton of other games that have a ton of issues b4 or after launch... smh to these devs... lets see if theres a day one patch....
become widespread thing for games now
Not just widespread BUT almost expected.... I mean you don't see people not buying those game at lunch infact you see more people purchasing.. SMH.
Ah Sonic, what happened...
They're aware that the game is pure garbage.
Megadrive days after that. That's it lol although I did like sonic adventure 2 on dreamcast that was good..but this is shit! Lol
Having been a long time Sonic fan; this is rather disheartening. I've seen a playthrough on YouTube done by Cobermani456; and I gotta say - It looks really unfinished. For a game that was built on CRYENGINE - it sure doesn't look like it. The graphics are sub-par - a complete letdown from the builds at E3 and PAX. Animations look to stiff and twitchy. It just doesn't flow. Gameplay isn't anywhere near the "Sonic" formula. It's pretty much you're typical beat-em' up action game, with on-rails sections so that speed fits somewhere into the equation - and even they look sucky. I don't see how Sonic could go from up, to way down, to back up again, and now back down. It's amazing how the franchise is even still relatively relevant.
Wow, I wonder if it's a good game. /s
Just make Sonic Riders 3
I just wish Sonic didn't suck.
Oh man.... that's not good at all.
Only fun I've had playing as Sonic the past few years is on Smash Bros 3ds
When can I haz good Sonic game? :(
And i'm kinda liked Lost World. Let's hope the reviewers give bad scores for the quality of the game, not for not receiving a copy of the game.
Well is a Sonic game that doesn't play like Sonic you can't expect Sega to feel confident about this game
Sonic '06, welcome to the world your son, Sonic '14, better known as Sonic Boom.
i have a baaaaad feeling about this...
this pretty much confirms that the game is going to be sub-par . You'd have to be crazy to buy this game day 1.
How come they can't make another sonic adventure game?
Sonic is doomed...... really what they should do is the exact same thing Nintendo is doing with the NSMB series, that's all you have to do with Sonic, trying to do more you screw up
I get what your saying about NSMB, but if you look at Mario games Nintendo NSMB is just a different way of playing Mario, but we have amazing 3D Mario's too. Galaxy, 64, Sunshine, 3D world. Nintendo holds their flagship mascot to hight standards, unfortunately Sega has not been as strict with their once great flagship. Though I still have some have some hope for this game, it seems unlikely it will be anything more than average and that is not acceptable for a sonic game.
I've been playing the game. Its somewhat fun, but held back by some glitchs. The controls are ok, but not as responsive as I would like. There is potential in the gameplay and engine, but the game was rushed.
It sucks. I wanted the game but if the publisher shows such a lack of faith in their own product I can't see paying top dollar for this game. Sonic used to be a worthy alternative to Mario games. I don't know what happened.
